Can the virus be carried on plastic?

With my parcels, I handle them limitedly, then put them in a safe place. I come back to them 48+ hours later to unwrap. That's because I've read conflicting sources saying the virus can remain on a surface for up to 24 hours, or up to 48 hours. This isn't gospel and I'd rather it be compared against official sources than heeded or bested by some other hearsay.

The country of origin has little odds, less so in China given its comparatively low cases now, especially compared to the USA where it's exploding.

Postmen/women are wearing gloves as it has been said the virus can stay on a surface for 48 hours , so they are protecting themselves but spreading the virus .

Shut down Royal Mail immediately .

Under some circumstances it can remain dormant in a place for months . This sort of virus is a lottery, some people will never be infected however much close contact they have whilst others can catch it airborne from a seemingly unlimited distance . The good news is that I doubt your parcel from China is a carrier any more so than a parcel from Halifax but I haven't studied that area of the science

Number 36 at my local Chinese is indeed Corona Chicken.

It all depends on the surface material and the temperature. 

Highly unlikely that the virus would spread from China and far more likely, buy still unlikely, that the virus could have been spread by the delivery person. 

I have a package being delivered soon and I've been told they'll knock to let me know its delivered and then I just need to respond back that I know they've delivered it and that's that. No signing needed.

This is the official guidance we have been given at Post Offices. A bit vague, unfortunately.

Q: Is it safe to handle mail and documents from customers?

A: Public Health England has advised that there is no perceived increase in risk of contracting the new coronavirus for handling post or freight from specified areas. From experience with other coronaviruses, we know these types of viruses don’t survive long on objects, such as letters, parcels or identity documents. This complements the highly publicised guidance from PHE for people to wash their hands more often than usual using soap and hot water.

Gutted the China Dragon at Mixy has closed because if Coronavirus, Its little treats like a takeaway that get us through the bad times. 

Yes, Xin Ying on North Bridge has closed too. The only Chinese in Halifax with a five star food hygiene rating. Had to order fish and chips from Just Eat instead. They were nice though!
